269 Poster caps

Note ten to one ratio of height to pen width.  Don't let this alphabet get heavy.   

During the heyday of hand-lettered signage, there were hundreds of sample alphabets to choose from.  Here is one I came across recently.  I've named it Poster caps.  It's appealing, legible, and easy to write, and it has the charming flavor of a bygone American era.
